Pocket-Sized Mixer: Native Instruments Announces Traktor Kontrol Z1

Native Instruments announced the latest addition to their modulare DJ system, the Traktor Kontrol Z1. The Z1 combines the best mixer elements of the Kontrol S4, in a package the size of an X1 or F1. It’s specifically designed to use in conjunction with iOS Traktor DJ (Traktor’s mobile app). Here’s some features we like:

Size: identical to the Kontrol F1 and X1, the Z1 might be the most portable mixer on the market.

Built-in Sound Card: iOS DJs now have a portable audio interface that delivers powerful, club-ready sound.

Traditional Mixer Controls: 3 band EQ, dedicated filter knobs, headphone cue, back-lit buttons and dedicated volume faders.

Charger: charges your mobile Apple device when plugged in.

The Traktor Kontrol Z1 is available for pre-order here and ships July 3, 2013.
